Transcript of The FBI
As I said before the in the history of the FBI, it can vary many different duties depending on a specific investigation. Most of the time FBI agents have to go undercover , adopting a new persona, and infiltrate a criminal group to discover the nature of their activities. Common duties that FBI agents perform include research, investigation and filling out reports.
The FBI is a Federal Agency. At last count, there were over 125 different government agencies and commissions, only a small portion of which directly affect investors. Some organizations, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA) have their operations explicitly backed by the U.S. Treasury. Other organizations, such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Sallie Mae are only provided with an implied guarantee from the U.S. Treasury.
FBI Crime Lab
The FBI came from a force of special agents created in 1908 by Attorney General Charles Bonaparte during the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. Both Attorney General Bonaparte and President Theodore Roosevelt, who finished their terms in March 1909, suggestsed that the force of 34 agents become a permanent part of the Department of Justice. Attorney General George Wickersham, Bonaparte's partner, named the force the Bureau of Investigation on March 16, 1909.
Inside the FBI
FBI Agents - Working Conditions
In a typical work setting, detectives and investigators:
-Have a medium level of social contact. Detectives in some agencies have a high level of social contact.
-Communicate with others by telephone, in person, and e-mail. They also write letters and memos, but less frequently.
-Are sometimes placed in conflict situations where they must deal with angry or unpleasant people.
-Deal directly with suspects, witnesses, and others involved with cases.

-Are responsible for the safety of the community.
-May occasionally deal with people who may become physically violent or aggressive.
-Usually work as part of a team.
The FBI may claim that any four year college degree is enough schooling to become an agent, but that doesn't mean that all college degrees are valued the same in their eyes. In fact, the FBI has stated that attaining an educational background in the field of engineering, computer science, behavioral sciences, business, and information technology highly favors applicants simply because those areas of study are most applicable to the goals and objectives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Since the FBI primarily deals with conducting investigations and problem solving, it is imperative to master effective study habits and develop strong critical thinking skills which will be applied on a daily basis.
FBI Special Agent jobs are probably among the most romanticized or the most unrealistic job in America. Since most of America has seen countless of spy movies, they tend to think that the FBI is more like James Bond. Special Agent work can be a mix of routine tasks combined with exciting and rewarding work.
The FBI has 56 field offices (also called divisions) centrally located in major metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Each field office is overseen by a special agent in charge, except for the offices in Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, D.C., which are headed by an assistant director in charge due to their mass size. Within these field offices are a total of about 380 resident agencies located in smaller cities and towns. Resident agencies are managed by supervisory special agents
FBI Agents can be described as law enforcement officials on a national level however. A career with the FBI include special agents, linguists, hostage rescue team members and investigative support, etc.
Potential For Advancement
-There FBI hires more than 30,000 people in 56 field offices and 400 satellite offices.
A freshly graduated Special Agent’s salary begins at approximately $43,000 per year but this salary can increase to anywhere between $63,000 and $69,000 depending on locality pay and availability pay adjustments. FBI Agents typically start at a GS-10, but promotions are fairly regular to GS-13.
Police officers usually are eligible for promotion after a probation period. This period ranges from six months to three years. Promotions may enable an officer to become a detective. Promotions to higher ranks are usually made according to a candidate's position on a promotion list. Scores on written exams and job performance determine a candidate's position. According to data published by the FBI, newly assigned special agents receive a base salary of $43,441, plus locality pay ranging from 12.5% to 28.7% of base, as well as availability pay, which equates to a 25% increase in adjusted salary due to the requirement that agents average 50-hour work weeks. Therefore, new agents may earn $61,100 to $69,900 depending on the location of their assignment.
